If you want to grab yourself a huge bite of the authentic taste of Antigua, then get yourself down to OJ’s and have a feast. This quirky family-run establishment has been a cornerstone beach restaurant for many years and is a must visit location for anyone touring the southwest coastline. OJ’s Bar and Restaurant oozes character. Every year it receives a decorative, organic makeover with interesting items of driftwood, shells, fishing nets, buoys and anchors washed up on the beach or retrieved from the sea. The sandy beach location is a great place to work up an appetite. Have an energising swim, walk along the deserted beach or just relax with a rum punch and watch the waves crash to shore. From this picturesque setting marvel at the vibrant sunsets and breathtaking views out towards five neighbouring islands. You can’t go wrong trying one of OJ’s outstanding meals. The lobster salad, sautéed garlic shrimps and seafood pasta are beloved island favourites, or if you’re into meat then go for a juicy sirloin steak. There’s also a good wine list, but the island rum cocktails are not for the faint hearted! How is it that in tough times for the restaurant trade OJ’s is standing firm? OJ says the reason is simple, “Our standards are consistent, the food remains great, you know what you’ll get and you will return. Ask any local”. It’s hard to imagine their legendary grilled red snapper could get any better, but I’m sure my last one was. Perhaps the trick is, after a while you begin to doubt it could have been that good, so that when you return… it blows your taste buds all over again. You can also experience the taste of OJ’s for private parties or weddings of up to 125 guests seated in-house, or catering for 200 plus guests when delivered to a venue of your choice for any occasion. OJ’s jazz extravaganza takes place on Fridays, with live entertainment on Sundays.
